Three Y8 students were awarded prizes today by Jack Kaighin and Ali Clark from the Island’s Energy from Waste plant.
This was a result of a competition for Y8 geographers to design a leaflet to explain about their visit to the EfW plant on Richmond Hill earlier in the year as part of their ‘My world; My responsibility’ topic. The students were tasked to consider how the plant works, and why it was chosen as a suitable option for waste management and energy generation for the Isle of Man.
Jack and Ali said ‘We were very impressed with the amount of information the students had remembered from their visit to the plant, and the effort and care that had gone in to producing the leaflets. We shall be displaying the finished work in the EfW for other school and community visitors to see. It is good to see SNHS geographers learning about the importance of recycling and waste management”
The three winning students, Cara, Megan and Carrey were each presented with a goodie pack with a selection of Sita and EfW merchandise to help them with their studies, such as mouse mats, stationery and memory sticks, with the first prize winner also receiving a laptop bag. Many thanks to the Sita team for judging the competition, providing the prizes and for allowing the Y8 geographers to have the worthwhile experience of the visit to the EfW plant each year.
